Mama Ant's sons are dating?!?

Hello everyone! I've been lurking for a few years now, don't know why I never signed up, but here I am! This is my first post, so please be gentle. ;)

It appears that Mama Ant from Where the Creek Meets the Land (antsonafarm.blogspot), had a few visitors. Her two oldest boys brought over some friends, who happen to be girls. hmmmm, looks like dating to me. Why would two boys from a family all for really creepy courtships and betrothals be allowed to hang out with girls? Seems odd to me.

Welcome to posting on FJ!

Those boys and girls are standing awfully close to each other in the pictures - surely someone is getting defrauded. I kind of have a soft spot for Mama Ant - after that whole mess about her daughter's birthing experience so I am kind of hoping that Mama Ant et al is becoming more "lite" than "fundie".

Edited because I can't write English "too good" tonight (might have missed some typos as well)

I really wish MamaAnt had hung around a bit longer, because I am so curious about how they wound up in these circles in the first place. They've always seemed sort of on the fringes of the inner circle, in terms of zealousness, you know, and maybe more curious about it than anything (I've seen them do both VF and ATI conferences, too). I've always been convinced that the whole "bride price" and betrothal thing that was due to pressure from Cap'n Bret - and the shiny, happy examples of the S'Mortons, too (I always get that vibe from Papa Smith on the videos - while the Mortons lure me in with their Little House-personas, Smith seems like he wants to preach fire and brimstone and sell me a car, all at the same time). They (MamaAnt and Co) seem like they want to do what's best for their kids, and I think they just got carried away. Maybe the boys were old enough when this whole thing started that they didn't want to go along for the ride. Maybe Bb really did choose the path of courtship for herself. If it weren't for Bb's betrothal, and the company they occasionally keep, I would call them fundie-lite at best, simply because MamaAnt seems so non-simpering and reasonable.

And what I'm REALLY curious about is what's going to happen with their next daughter, who just graduated high school-homeschooling. She seems a bit younger than Bb to me, though, not slow, just like she still has a lot of growing up to do, so I hope she doesn't rush into anything permanent (but she's at a prime age for a little dating!).

Yes, I wish she had hung out here a little longer as well. She seemed to insinuate that her thoughts on courtship had changed, probably due to the birth fiasco. If I recall correctly, a few years ago one of her older sons was courting, I think it was talked about on her blog or her daughter's blog. I wonder what happened with that? I wonder if the Ants are going to let their children date now that they have been burned by courtship a few times?

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.
